The Korean giant LG will look to continue its triumphant run with the V series of flagship smartphones. With the V20 being lauded in all quarters, the next-generation V30 will consolidate it market to an even greater extent. Reports have now emerged that the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, known in tech jargon as a SoC, will power the new LG V30. The new chip is several times more powerful than its previous iterations. The 835 Soc was first displayed in full public view at the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas only a few weeks ago.

The new LG V30 also has one unique feature which will continue to wow audio buffs and even common users. It will feature an ESS-designed 32-bit quad-DAC system which will improve the audio system exponentially. This new feature, in conjunction with the Bang and Olufsen headphones. will make the new LG V30 one to watch out for. The new LG V30 is expected to arrive soon. The Korean giant has sought to change its perception from being a white goods manufacturer to one which manufactures a specialised device like a smartphone. the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor is ample testimony to the fact that LG is dead serious in creating a splash in the high-end smartphone market with the LG V30.

The other features of the new LG V30 are also very interesting.  Unlike the preceding LG V20, the LG V30 will ditch the secondary display which had endeared the V20 to many users. The reason for the decision is not known, also it must be mentioned here that this snippet of news is more rumour than verifiable fact. The new LG V30 is also a competent phone with a  6GB RAM which is coupled with decent, if not overly impressive, internal storage options.The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, although an excellent choice, may prove to be the chink in the armour for the new smartphone as Samsung, the other Korean giant, has exclusive rights over the entire SoC supply until the month of March. This means that only the new Samsung Galaxy S8 devices will come equipped with the new SD 835 processors, although LG too may look to power some of its own V-series devices with underclocked variants of the same chipset.

This is precisely the reason why we believe that the new LG V30 may be delayed. Considering the fact that the average lifecycle of the V-series smartphone is one year, we were well within our rights in estimating a September or October 2017 release. However, with the fate of the new chipset hanging in the balance, this might well get delayed by some time. Interestingly, yesterday Samsung announced that it would soon launch the Exynos 9 series processors. Whether or not it will power the new Galaxy S8 is something only time will tell. The new LG V30 would do good if it followed the example set by Xiaomi, with its indigenous Pinecone processor or even Apple with its own Fusion Chip or the A10. The LG v30 is compatible with all the best selfie sticks.
